the only time i had this was the few times i charged to 100% the charge generated via regen has to go into the battery if full regen was deactivated until approx. 90-95% SoC. If its not that you probably check in with the dealer. Good Luck!
Yeah this used to work at first, then it stopped working and I cannot figure out how to get this working again, the manual is not helpful at all, I cannot find any Toyota support for this so I have made an appointment with the dealership. Lol not a great start, less than a week old.Mine has had this problem for the past two weeks, and it think it likely is reducing efficiency. If you take a look at Subaru Solterra forums, several folks have the same issue with that vehicle as well. I don't think a solution has yet been discovered, and the cause seems to be unknown, since it occurs even when when the battery is at a low state of charge—not just when it's fully or near fully charged.
I wonder if only vehicles with the CATL battery are having this problem..?
I will. It is 40f here, when I first got the car it was 37fPlease keep us updated as to what your dealer finds as for the cause.
Out of curiosity, what are current outside temperatures like where you're located?
At full charge it read 302mi, I was unable to activate the 1 pedal mode, as soon as I reached 260mi I was able to engage it. I wont be able to for sure test this as I am planning on using this charge session for about a week before charging it again, I will then do more tests and report back.When you say 260 mile mark, do you mean 260 miles driven on a charge? So you were approaching 0% before it engaged?
I get that the boost won't activate if the battery is fully charged, or if the battery is cold, but even after half an hour of driving and <50% charge, I can't get it to activate for more than a couple of minutes.
Agreed!EVERY post that has anything to do with charging, regen, battery should include information on battery version (FWD or AWD) and temperature.
I think they'll fix it, and if they don't, I would think it would be subject to recall. If you activate a setting that's supposed to slow down the car when you lift your foot and it doesn't, it can turn into a panic situation as you reach for the brake pedal and that can cause an accident. As @B.Wilkins_85 mentioned, too, Toyota really focused on battery degradation. Seems like the sourcing of the 72.8 kWh battery for AWD in NA came late in the process and they seem to be still testing it.US AWD, 20 to 40 F
I am in same boat - hardly ever can get region boost to activate and the few times it has it deactivates within seconds. I would like the extra efficiency, but even moreso want the engine compression effect with AWD traction control when descending mountain passes in winter.
I am really holding out hope that the Toyota engineers can fix this and other issues like displaying SOC in the car with OTA updates ASAP. One doesn't like paying $50K+ for horatory features and unachievable range estimates for a vehicle model that has sold around the world for many months.
I totally agree, had the same issues and decided to quit using itOK after about a day, I can honestly say that this feature is rather pointless, I see no advantage in using this. With my hybrid, I could see the regenerative boost working on the batteries, with this I see no improvement, maybe you get 1-2 miles from a full charge, this also may save some brakes but otherwise not worth using. Its too picky and disables at odd times to be of any use so I have decided that I will no longer be activating it.
